Re: Cake
You make a good point (not sure how good of a cake maker you are). Total security would mean no one could access the information, but then the content is useless. It's a never ending battle to balance strong seccurity while still permitting access to authorized users.

Re: What happens in the future..?
Yes, all interesting questions. Just how do they know how much is encrypted and that "80% of network traffic will be encrypted by next year," makes for some interesting speculation and just how best to resolve the issues in that apparent trend now moving forward.

Cake
To me, having security + privacy isn't having your cake and eating it too. It's more like having frosting on your cake.

Having your cake and eating it too in the classic sense would probably run more along the lines of enhanced accessibility WITH enhanced security (something that is, logically, impractical if not impossible).

But, then again, what's the point of having cake if you're not going to eat it?

What happens in the future..?
> "half of malware campaigns will use encryption, Cisco says"

Hmm. I wonder what happens when more and more traffic is encrypted -- and when nearly all traffic is encrypted, what happens then? How will malware campaigns be detected? Just by metadata about where traffic is going and coming from? This seems like a losing battle to me. But maybe I'm missing some key point about how this all works. 

I also would like to know how Cisco arrives at its estimates for how much encrypted malware traffic exists..?
